COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
Steven Cauthen will be speaking in our Sunday morning worship hour. Steven and his family are missionaries to the Jewish people having served many years in Eilat, Israel. I have had the privilege to be Steven’s pastor when he was just a teenager. Even then he had the burden to serve as a missionary. In 1997, I was blessed to take him along with me to Brazil on a short term mission trip which helped to confirm The Lord’s calling on his life. I hope you will pray for Steven and his family as they reach out to the Jewish people with the Gospel of Jesus who is the Christ.
I hope you will make plans to come out and attend the Wednesday evening service July 18th at 7:00 PM. Trevor Thomas Drama Ministry will be with us in concert, and I understand that this going to be more than just singing. There will be stories and skits and humor and the presentation of the Gospel. Come out and join with us for a night of Christian fun and worship.
Romans 15:6, “That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
With all that is going on in the world today, it is easy to get distracted from what is most important. The world offers all kinds of dainties to preoccupy our minds and keep us going in a thousand different directions. TV, sports, careers, and even church work can get in the way of that which is most important. The most important thing in Church fellowship is unity in the Spirit of Christ. Notice I did not say uniformity. We do not need everyone doing the same thing or being the same in personality or ability, but we do need everyone to be united in one mind pulling in the same direction. Even though the body of Christ is made up of people with different talents and strengths and even different weaknesses, we can be one by walking in the Spirit of Christ. The common link we share in the body of Christ is His life, and when we are abiding in Him, we are going in the same direction bringing glory to God. Let us resolve to walk in the Spirit in order for God to work through each one of us individually, because we are all different, but we are bonded together by the same Life, The Spirit of Christ.
I Corinthians 12:26-27, “And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”
In Christ, Ricky
